A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Challenging to quickly use one thumb to make character jump and the other to change color, but responsive controls and simple gameplay make up for it.
Violence & Scariness
When the player fails to jump and/or change the color of the character in time to make it to the next platform, the character crashes in a poof of smoke.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
There's so much more going on than just running and leaping over obstacles, which makes it more interesting and, potentially, more frustrating. Dozens of similar games, such as Temple Run, are all based on a similar concept of running, avoiding obstacles, collecting stuff, and reaching new levels. However, Chameleon Run sets itself apart with the color-switch twist, the different types of jumps, and customizable options such as the ability to replay recordings, a face cam, and adjustable controls. Though the layered challenge might be too much for some kids (and adults), Chameleon Run is a really fun, challenging, and visually appealing game.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
